    Only a hot commodity based on perception. Which apparently Buffalo fell for hard. He was an assistant coach that rode the wave of deciding which pairings of probably the best Dcorp in the league. Add in his Hall of Fame career, and Buffalo’s need to fix their defense, and they found their “defense whisperer”

    I was so pissed watching Hellebucyk give up juicy rebound after juicy rebound with no in-game adjustment to capitalize on that weakness. We should have won this game 7-2.

    It wasnt a bad idea to give him a shot, it was bad to sit back and watch him make bad decision after bad decision with no emotional investment and not do something. Hiring a first time head coach is fine, doing so on a young rebuilding team learning how to win, not so much. They needed structure and accountability, a year and a half later and they still need those things, housley brings neither and has done nothing to show he will ever bring them.

    Dahlin is our best defenseman at 18 years old, he made a bad mistake that lost us the game, last game he stayed out way to long in OT to try and score rather then getting fresh legs on the ice, sit him in the press box next game. At least then we know you're teaching the kids. Continuing to allow guys to have no accountability will also teach them losing is ok.

    They needed a goal. They have gotten late goals before.

    What is this team? The good teams score big goals from time to time in these spots.

    It would be bummer if Buffalo were to keep sliding.

    They're playing like these are big games. The wins will come.

    They certainly didn’t look it.

    And I didn’t think we played as amazingly as everyone else seems to think.

    Winnipeg looked ****ing brutal.

    RJ referring to Zo’s son as his daughter was the most OneBuff thing in the world.

    What a ****ing embarrassment that was. Cringeworthy to the Nth - how do you not ensure that that’s avoided???

    We are such a disaster across the entire professional sports spectrum sometimes.

    It's extremely frustrating to watch. He'll have tons of time and space and just glide slowly toward the wall not sure what to do, ridding himself of all that time and space, trapping himself against the wall. By then he gives himself no option but to throw it off the wall.

    He needs every habit in his brain completely flipped and reprogrammed.

    Thanks Phil for wasting the Jack line all night. He matched them up against the Scheifele line and let them get dominated.

    Meanwhile our actual checking line (Larsson) dominated the rest of the Jets team.

    Yeah they were a one line team yesterday. Unfortunately for us, that one line IS their best line and easily outclassed our "#1" by a mile.

    our best line was the Larsson line by quite a bit.

    Both teams stunk, but Buffalo had more zone time with the puck it seemed.

    That was quite harmless compared to the product on the ice.

    It was bad but you can deflect and say the man is going senile and chalk it up to his age.
